On Sunday, the 6535 dwt South Korean tanker, Doola No. 3, exploded in the Yellow Sea near the port of Incheon. Of the crew of 16, 5 are confirmed dead while 6 are missing. The explosion ripped the tanker in half. The ship was traveling in ballast after discharging a cargo of gasoline. The Doola No. 3 typically transports diesel fuel. The cause is still undermined but an ignition of gasoline fumes is suspected to have caused the explosion.
